Peter Lynn have just launched a new kite, the Swell, aimed at the wave riders out the the kite is a simple 3 strut SLE kite that is sure to excite…
“Hit the surf like never before with the Peter Lynn Swell, a 3-strut SLE that brings wakestyle, freeride, wave & surf closer together than ever. The Swell is designed to give you the responsiveness and manoeuvrability of a wave/wake style kite and combines it with smooth drift and great stability that allows you to focus on surfing. Add to this a gigantic windrange and you end up with a versatile kite that performs in a variety of conditions.”
“The Swell’s rigid 3 strut, medium Aspect Ratio design provides you with an incredibly stable yet agile platform. It is highly adaptable and can be tuned to pure waveriding or more surf oriented riding. On the high bar pressure setting the kite is very responsive and it sharp turning allows for a more ‘bash & dash’ riding style for when the waves are short and you have to keep moving. It is also on this setting where you throw some free and wakestyle in the mix as the kites quick power delivery provides plenty of pop for those unhooked tricks.
On the lower bar pressure setting the Swell gives you a more relaxed, surf oriented character where you can easily turn off the kites power and let it drift along practically neutral while you focus on your riding. Even completely depowered the Swell remains easy to control and snaps out of its drift when you need it.”
“The Swell’s excellent stability and smooth drift combined with its fast turning and responsive power regulation gives you the freedom to ride hard & powerful and even throw in some freestyle or jump on a skimboard. In surf conditions the Swell’s depowered stability and manoeuvrability allows you to concentrate more on your board and your ideal line.
The Swell’s perfect balancing resulted in a powerful and fast turning kite which at the same time retains the stability often seen in higher AR kites. The responsive and intuitive bar feedback let’s you know where the kite is and it steers easy even with one hand or on a small bar. The simple 3-strut design feels rock solid even when it is fully depowered and the bridle is kept to a minimum and clean by rigging it with Ronstan® SHOCK pulleys.”
“The Swell is an easy 4 line set-up and is controlled with the new Navigator SL control bar which has been reviewed by many as clean, simple & easy to use. The new Navigator SL bar features the Centrix push-away quick release chicken loop.
Whether you’re just catching your first waves or are a seasoned veteran, if waves give you inspiration, the Swell will be the choice for you!”
